Another Polish Days is HERE!!
So this time’s theme was valent…NO, Get Back to Nature :) I love Hannah’s idea not to stick on “usual” Valentine pink/red & heart theme but others; Yeah February is the time which we feel mother nature A LOT because of snow, cold breeze, icy environment…

0087-01.jpg

BUT the problem was my inspiration. I have NO IDEA WHY but since I knew the theme is “Get Back to Nature”, my mind was completely stuck on one design…CAMOUFLAGE. Especially very traditional Jungle camouflage. Well, as idea of classical camo color & pattern was to blend yourself into “Nature”…so WHY NOT? :P

And while I was stuck with this camo idea, my a-England parcel arrived. With Princess Sabra and Saint George. And I already had Dragon…this fact simply made up my mind to use them, as they’re nice smoky-toned khaki-greens with great sparkles.

Meanwhile, BIG THANKS to Radha from The Polish Owl, I got Tess D’Uebervilles, nice black with dark green sparkles; As they all are from same brand which creates my favorite greens, I thought they all will work quite nice together…and happily, yes they did!! :D

This was also my first trial for camo pattern and I LOVED IT. I wasn’t a fan of matte camo look but with sparkles it looks really pretty :) Also it was very easy to do; I’m willing to do same thing with different color combination <3
But before that…I’m VERY curious how other girls worked on this pretty artistic theme…Can’t wait to check them out! :D

さて前回存在を忘れて参加を逃すという大失態をかました海外ネイル部ことPolish Days、今回は忘れるもんか絶対参加しちゃるー!……と意気込んでいたのですが、そこへ来たテーマ……「Get Back to Nature」って何だ。自然へ帰れ。ネイルエキスポとかのアートチップアワードみたいなテーマ来ましたよちょっと。何をどーすればと思いつつまずぱっと思いついたのは迷彩柄でした。そしてそのまま何処をどう押しても引いても何も出ないまま今に至った、その結果が本日のネイルであります。

とはいえ迷彩柄=自然界に溶け込むための柄、なのだからあながち間違ってはいないと思うのですよ(自己弁護)別に色アレンジもしていない基本配色の迷彩ですしね!あとa-Englandで全揃え出来たのも良かったのかな。さすが同じ玉虫シマーなだけあって違和感無くキレイな玉虫迷彩に仕上がったかなと思います。まあ本来全部玉虫で行くならBridal Veilを使うべきだったんでしょうけれども……とはいえTessも緑シマーなので馴染んでくれて良かったです。

迷彩柄結構楽しかったのでまたやってみたいところです。今度は全塗りじゃなくて迷彩フレンチとかできたらいいな!絶対かわいいと思うんだけどなー( ´∀`)

  9. こんにちは^^

    迷彩素敵です!!

    迷彩の基本の配色だときつい仕上がりになりがちだけど
    玉虫カラーを使うとこんなに綺麗になるんですね。

    うんうん、フレンチも可愛いでしょうね~。
    他の指のカラーの組み合わせも素敵だし
    特に小指に使われているポリ綺麗ですね。

    Chiroさんの色使い、いつも見惚れてしまいます!!

    1. わーありがとうございます!
      ただの迷彩じゃ面白くないなーからスタートしたポリ選びだったのですが、キレイといって頂けて本当に嬉しいです(´∀`)迷彩って全塗りするといかつくなりますしねー、どうにかキレイ方向にまとまって良かったなあとは思いますw

      ちなみに小指のポリはSaint Georgeといいます。単色塗りしても超キレイな1本です♪
